(Gary and Spike and Penny too)
The missus grabbed the camera, and there I am. Of course, now they're all thumping each other which is their morning habit.
So, perfect weather, good health, good ideas and fun work and healthy cats and dogs, what could go wrong????????? A broken kiln. It sputtered last week and yesterday DIED. Sigh. I have some spare parts for this very reason (bought extra parts last time it broke down) and will tear it open and do surgery later this am. I have lost a day.
I don't have alot of confidence in doing electrical repairs, but kilns are meant to be repaired, and who else is around to do it? With any luck, once I get the thing apart, it will be something simple. I can also have its onboard computer run a self-diagnostic test. Next photos will show me with my pliers and a bunch of wires all over the place.
